Dito Ladd informed us that Dru Gahagan (nee McElannon) passed away in early November in the Washington, DC area. Dru's obituary in the Washington Post is available here. These notices are coming all too frequently.
Yesterday we sent out an email blast providing event information for the 50-Year Reunion. We also updated the website with registration forms (both downloadable and on-line), events locations and times, event costs, Things To Do in Bellevue/Omaha, and other info.
Let us know what additional information you need to plan your trip.
In September, we sent out 131 letters to those classmates for which we had a mailing address but no email. Thirty-five letters came back as "Return to Sender." On the plus side, 23 classmates responded with new contact information.
During the same period, 12 classmates found our Class of 1967 website or Facebook page and used the Contact Form on the website to provide us with updated contact information. In all, the accuracy of our Class of 1967 database was improved significantly.
With this new information we updated the Class of 1967 Alumni Directory and prepared a new Map of Classmates. For you Facebook viewers, both can be found on our website http://bellevue1967reunion.weebly.com/.
Keep up the good work in spreading the word about the 50-Year Reunion and using the Directory to reach out to classmates; you might be surprised who lives in your area.
Today we posted the second email blast to 85 Alumni for whom we have email addresses. We're doing a little better on mailing addresses where we have close to 200. Considering we had 420+ graduates, these numbers are not too good. Check out the Reunion Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/Bellevue1967Reunion/.
Please update or confirm your mailing and email addresses using the Contact Form on this website. Use that form also if you have contact information for another classmate.
We are using Facebook, this webpage, Twitter, and email blasts to communicate the 50-Year Reunion with alumni. As events occur, look for the notice here.
